But she finally realizes what life is about.“Just so, my family and Perkin and Meg and Gerd and Aelis and the barn cats and even my father are part of me, and I part of them, so even in my new life I will still be me. Mayhap I can so what I must and still be me, still survive and, please God, even thrive. I have grided my lions like a warrior from the Bible and am going forth to do battle with the enemy. He shall not find a comfortable prize he has won, this gray-eyed, sun-browned beauty. Amen.”pg 162. This quote is one of the most important quotes in the book.

Growing up, a change recognized by all, is wildly forgotten. This is the story of Catherine Called Birdy by Karen Cushman. It shows how the need for change, is discovered by experiences and exchanges by/from others. Catherine was a pushy, whiney, and selfish person, who only cared about herself. However, by the end of the novel, she is considerate of others, still pushes for her beliefs in a more polite and educated manner, and embraces the fact experiences have value. Different experiences such as the hanging and Roger’s death teach the horrors of society, her mother and the Jewish lady teach Catherine how to be herself, and animals like the ant and the bear teach her how the little things could be huge to others.
“Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves” (“Confucius”). This quote from the Chinese philosopher Confucius poignantly illustrates the extent of the the negative effects that revenge can have on a person. Indeed, what once was a quest to destroy another quickly becomes a countdown until one destroys oneself. Nonetheless, the need to enact vengeance is pervasive throughout society, from the “eye for an eye” (“The Code of Hammurabi”) mentality in the code of Hammurabi to Internet mob shaming. However, these pursuits of vengeance did nothing to provide any sort of moral reconciliation: two eyes are lost instead of just one under Hammurabi’s code, and Internet shaming only serves to ruin people’s lives instead of combating real
Who better would reveal what happens in closed doors of families in 1800’s United Kingdom with great practice of language than one who had the skills and the experience to? As she, according to bio., Emily Bronte, lived from 1818 to 1848, in Yorkshire, United Kingdom, she wrote poems and novels under her and her sisters: Charlotte and Anne Bronte’s pseudonym “Ellis Bell”. In her only published novel, Wuthering Heights, Emily Bronte authored the narration of two families: Earnshaws and Linton to cognizance their decisions and their motives at Thrushcross Grange. Through Mr. Lockwood and Nelly Dean’s narration, as well as Catherine Earnshaw’s diary entries, she composed a plot of two falling deeply in love but never marrying. Although the novel
One of the most prevalent themes in Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights and Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein is that of obsession.
Noted by Nelly, “The contrast resembled what you see in exchanging a bleak, hilly, coal country for a beautiful fertile valley; and his voice and greeting were as opposite as his aspect.”(pg.69) In this excerpt, Nelly retells the events that perspired at Wuthering Heights to Mr.Lockwood, when Cathy invites Edgar Linton to the house and we see the striking differences between himself and Heathcliff. Edgar is described as the beautiful fertile valley and Heathcliff the former, described as a bleak, hilly, coal country. Additionally, one can see how Cathy is caught in between these two young men and although it’s not said directly she can be seen as the moors. Whereas Edgar is representative of Thrushcross Grange, it is no surprise then that turbulent Wuthering Heights is shown in Heathcliff. Finding inspiration from her life, Emily Brontë makes it easy to see that the setting reflects each character and she thoroughly uses the setting to develop them throughout Wuthering Heights.
Individualism is the political and social philosophy that emphasizes the moral worth of the individual. It is the idea that the individual’s life belongs to him and that he has an inalienable right to live it as he sees fit, to act on his own judgment, to keep and use the product of his effort, and to pursue the values of his choosing. It’s the idea that the individual is sovereign, an end in himself, and the fundamental unit of moral concernIndividualism in a novel refers to characters’ unique qualities as well as the way in which they express themselves.

Wuthering Heights is a novel by Emily Brontë, published in 1847. The book's core theme is the destructive effect that jealousy and vengefulness have, both on the jealous or vengeful individuals and on their communities. Although Wuthering Heights is now widely regarded as a classic of English literature, it received mixed reviews when first published, and was considered controversial because its depiction of mental and physical cruelty was unusually stark, and it challenged strict Victorian ideals of the day, including religious hypocrisy, morality, social classes and gender inequality. Wuthering Heights, which has long, been one of the most popular and highly regarded novels in English literature. In my essay I will write about
Wurthering Heights rebelled against the belief at the time that servants are socially below their masters in the social hierarchy. Nelly, the servant of Thurcross Grange, proves to have more influence on the plot and her masters than many of those who are above her in the social hierarchy. The interdependence among the masters and the confided servant Nelly is an important part of Emily Brontë 's novel Wurthering Heights. Although Nelly is only a help to the other characters, she proves to have a strong influence on her masters and the decisions they make throughout the story.
In the gothic novel Wuthering Heights, Emily Bronte, the author, tells a tale of revenge and love as one man named Heathcliff, trudges through life. When Heathcliff was a child, the owner of Wuthering Heights, Mr. Earnshaw, took him in, and his presence in the house created conflict between himself and the other children living there. Most of it came from Hindley, Mr. Earnshaw’s son. Hindley later married Frances Earnshaw and became the head of the house after Mr. Earnshaw died. Shortly after giving birth, Frances died, causing Hindley to sink into a life of drunkenness, misery, and degradation. In the current passage, Nelly, Hindley’s foster sister, is shown as a motherly figure, a protector of the family, and Hindley’s son, Hareton, and takes on the role of a moral judge, dictating what was right or wrong in the house. Also, she stands up to Hindley and prevents him from ruining the family and Wuthering Heights.
Emily Brontë approaches the idea of sickness and death of the characters in her novel Wuthering Heights in a peculiar way. The characters that are ill are usually mentally ill, and their deaths often result from physical ailments derived from mental illness. The drive for revenge and desire for love that reigns among the characters often lands them in stressful situations that cause them to spiral downward into these mental illnesses. Emily Brontë’s emphasis on the motif of sickness and death in Wuthering Height deepens the drama of the plot and constructs more complicated relationships between the characters.
Generally class struggle means conflict between the upper class and lower class the idea of Class struggle is long-used mostly by socialists and communists, who define a class by its relationship to the means of production such as factories, land, and machinery.
